Communion: We celebrate communion (also known as The Lord's Supper) monthly, usually on the first
Sunday of the month.
Sunday School: Adult Sunday School meets at 9:45 AM in the session room, which is located to the left of
the front doors, at the end of the hall. Join us for a time learning, fellowship, and a good
cup of coffee! For the first six weeks of Sunday School (September 9 - October 14) we
will be using a discernment packet which includes a daily scripture reading, questions for
reflection, and a prayer. Discernment means listening to God and seeking God's guidance.
The purpose of this discernment packet is to invite God into the conversation about where
God is calling GRPC and who God is calling GRPC to serve. All are welcome! If you
would like a copy of the discernment packet, please contact Rev. Reinhold at (540) 366-
7959 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Women's small groups: (called Presbyterian Women Circles) usually meet on the second Monday and
Tuesday of the month. For more information, call the church office at 540-366-7959 or
e-mail email@example.com for more information.
Presbyterian Community Center (PCC): Loaves of bread are collected on the first
Sunday of the month for the PCC's food bank. Food and financial donations are collected biannually to support the PCC's Hunger Buster Bag program.
Two Cents-a-Meal donations are collected on the second Sunday of the month. These
donations help fight hunger locally, nationally, and internationally. This program was started
in 1979 by Rosellyn Calvert who wanted to help those suffering from hunger and poverty
around the world. When she asked God what she could do to help, she was led to give two
cents at each meal. We join many Christians throughout the nation in supporting the Two-
Cents-a-Meal program. Click here for more information. To donate, please make checks
payable to "Green Ridge Presbyterian Church" and write "Two Cents a Meal" in the memo
line. You can also donate cash in an envelope labeled "Two Cents a Meal."
Elijah's Backpack is a program that provides children in need with healthy meals and snacks throughout the weekend. This is a free, community ministry sponsored by St. Philip Lutheran Church in Roanoke, Virginia. Green Ridge Presbyterian partners with St. Philip Lutheran in supporting this ministry. Volunteers from Green Ridge help pack bags of food at St. Philip Lutheran once a month during the school
